Hola! Salut! Grüß Gott! The Modern Foreign Languages Department remains one of the most forward-looking departments at Mill Hill; developing the European Section 1967-2006 (working on projects with partner schools all over Europe) and Section Bilingue in 1967-1990. French, German and Spanish are currently taught in the department from beginners’ level up to GCSE and A Level (AQA specifications) and there remains a thriving programme of exchanges and educational visits to all three countries. Work experience placements are arranged for 6th Formers.
The department is well resourced with a digital language lab, languages library and audio-visual facilities in the modern classrooms, and is staffed by passionate native and fluent speakers. We employ a language assistant in each of the three languages who offer extra conversation lessons to exam year groups and we organise trips to the cinema, theatre, lectures and debating competitions in London.
We strongly encourage independent learning in the 6th Form by making use of the facilities at the Institut français, the Goethe Institute and the Instituto Cervantes and Canning House. Come and visit us on the Lower Ground Floor of the Favell Building to see for yourselves!
